See Local Rule 36(c).

PER CURIAM:
Joseph P. Pniewski seeks to appeal the district courts
order adopting the magistrate judges recommendation and dismissing
the West Virginia Prosecuting Attorneys Institute from the case,
dismissing all claims against Marjorie Martorella in her official
capacity, and dismissing the federal claims against Martorella in
her individual capacity.

The case is proceeding on Pniewskis

state law claims against Martorella in her individual capacity and


his claims against the Wayne County Commission.
This court may exercise jurisdiction only over final
orders, 28 U.S.C. 1291 (2000), and certain interlocutory and
collateral orders.

28 U.S.C. 1292 (2000); Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b);

Cohen v. Beneficial Indus. Loan Corp., 337 U.S. 541 (1949).

The

order Pniewski seeks to appeal is neither a final order nor an


appealable interlocutory or collateral order.

Accordingly, we

dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. We dispense with oral


argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately
presented in the materials before the court and argument would not
aid the decisional process.

DISMISSED
